Description

This climbs the right-facing large crack, just right of the 2 bolted lines on the west end of the wall. Steep hand and fist crack. With a good fist jam to pop the crux. Nice climb.

Protection

2 bolts for the anchors up top, and large gear for the route.

You can def lead this without anything over a #3 C4 (in case you're eyeing it but left the big stuff at home.) I climbed it with a #4 on my harness and didn't feel the need to bother with it. Aug 28, 2016

This is a great climb, fun easy moves to start and great moves through crux section. The final mantle is great as well. Feb 24, 2015

The crux of this climb is so much fun! It took me a few tries to get up it the first time I climbed it several years ago, and even though I know the move sequence now, it is still such a blast! We belayed on the far side of the stream at the base of the climb up on some rocks (to keep the rope dry and clean). I can't recommend this climb enough! May 4, 2014

I used mostly large gear for the lead, but I used two small TCUs. There is a good nut placement for the start. After the overhanging sections, the crack becomes a 4th class scramble to the ledge. You can keep it more interesting by climbing the face above and pulling over the lip. Jul 29, 2006
